Sumo Sake Showdown at CES-Las Vegas

CES Las Vegas If you’ve never heard about CES, then you have probably managed to avoid the press every new year.  If there is one show that hardware technology companies come out swinging, flexing, and strutting, this would be it.  If you are a gadget junkie, nerd, geek, or hacksaur, this is the show you want to ogle over this year’s releases.  Find everything from Apple accessories the the iLounge (North Hall) to the thinnest OLED TVs on the market.

A number of companies also show off their technology in a variety of custom concept vehicles.  Many companies with comfy marketing budgets will throw some penthouse parties.  Word on the street is that there is a penthouse party on the 64th floor of the Mandalay Bay on Wednesday (Must have a CES badge to get in).  If you’ve never puffed a cigar on top of the city that never sleeps, we encourage you to do so.  CES will go from January 8th-11th at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

On Tuesday and Wednesday at 4pm, we will be having a Sumo Sake Showdown. Put your weight behind your gut and enter for a chance to win a free Boombot2 Bluetooth speaker. Put your music where your mouth is at Booth 3506 at CES (Consumer Electronics Show).

Music increases performance and energy. Its a fact.

Two WEEKS till CES International – Gadget Debut

That’s right…the biggest show in the world.  Most tradeshows are two or three days tops.  CES is four.  Wanna know why?  Because its the biggest show in the world.

There’s a lot more to see at CES than JUST the 2012 Boombotix lineup (but boy do we have some tricks up our sleeve).  MSW Wireless will be showcasing the new House of Marley headphone line which are made primarily of renewable materials.  Great to see companies continue to pushy eco-freindly products.  Check them out at Booth 5419.

Clarity One is using one proven tactic to draw people to their booth to check out their new headphones.  Hope they sound as good as they look:

There are a lot of rumors that laptops will continue to get thinner.  At this point, we should be expecting some laptops thin enough to dice carrots no later than 2015.  CNET quoted, “rumor mill says that nearly every computer manufacturer will get in on the act with at least one 13- or 14-inch entry.

There’s also a lot of hype built up around LG showcasing the new Google TV (Engadget).  This is living proof that Apple and Google are ultimately going head-to-head with media.  Lets hope Google TV isn’t as buggy as the Android OS.

Wanna get a free pass to the show?  If you are a qualified retail buyer, or a member of the press, please send your credentials to support@boombotix.com and we will review.  Unfortunately, we are limited in the number of show passes that we get, so we cannot guarantee passes for everyone.  On the other hand, if you’re the real deal, bring your credentials to the show and you have no trouble going through good ol’ show registration (but it wont be FREE).
